Newcastle v Southampton player ratings results from fans – Surprising but deserving man of the match
The results of the Newcastle v Southampton player ratings by fans.
Always interesting to see what supporters have collectively made of the latest performance, when using our interactive ratings system.
Each player marked out of 10 and the averages below.
Despite his two goals and all round very good display, Kenedy (8.5) has just been shaded for the man of the match award.
Arguably, Jonjo Shelvey (8.6) played even better than the Man Utd match and what makes it even better, is that he refused to let his knee injury keep him out of the game.
Next up is Paul Dummett (8.3), the left-back putting in yet another disciplined and committed display.
A bit of a strange one as despite Newcastle winning by three goals, the two most forward players getting the lowest marks.
Both Gayle and Perez with 6.6, the pair of them wasting decent chances, though they combined excellently for the second goal when setting up Kenedy.
The other six starters all put in good to very good performances.
Centre-backs Lascelles and Lejeune building up a very good partnership and looked dominant, both scoring 7.9.
Mohamed Diame (7.8) once again looking the ideal partner for Shelvey, whilst Ritchie (7.6) has rediscovered his form (including goalscoring) at exactly the right time, scoring in consecutive home matches.
Martin Dubravka (7.4) didn’t have loads to do but yet again was in total command of his box, the only mistake he made was when bizarrely dropping the ball as he prepared to launch it up the field.
DeAndre Yedlin (7.0) completes the picture, getting on with his job and it is great having him in place when a winger tries to run him, as happened with Redmond on Saturday. No chance!
